Hangover Part II Breaks Box Office Record

The Hangover Part IIAfter its impressive box office record, it's only a matter of time before the sequel to The Hangover Part II is greenlit. The follow-up to the 2009 film The Hangover has grossed over $488 million to become the most globally successful R-rated comedy ever.

The Hangover Part II - which reunites original cast members Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Justin Bartha for the movie set in Bangkok - took in $21.4 million this weekend, surpassing the $468 million generated from the first movie and bringing the combined total to almost one billion dollars.

Following on from the box office success of The Hangover Part II, it is likely the cast and crew will return for a third film in the franchise with star Zach - who plays Alan Garner in the Todd Phillips-directed films - already getting calls about it. "They want to do a Hangover 3. I'm getting fricking phone calls already," Galifianakis said.

Filmmaker Todd has previously revealed another film in the series would be the last and thought it would be good to change the "template" of the franchise: "If we were to do a third one, and quite honestly we really haven't talked about it. I think we have a clear idea where that would head and it's certainly not in the same template you've seen these movies and obviously we always envisioned it as a trilogy as you can imagine, the third would very much a finale and an ending."


The Hangover 2: Who Isn’t Returning?

We’ve got it on good authority that the main cast of The Hangover will reunite in the sequel…all except for one.

Don’t worry - Zach Galifianakis and Bradley Cooper are definitely returning. Justin Bartha, the film’s hapless groom, and Ed Helms (the dentist) are also coming back. Even Ken Jeong (whose scene-stealing moment lives in movie infamy) and the film's bride, Sasha Barrese, will reprise their roles. So, who are we missing?

The Hangover’s Ed Helms Removes Real Tooth for Movie

Ed Helms in The Hangover

may have had to fake looking hungover during his latest film, but there was one acting trick that was authentic: The missing tooth.

In the trailers for The Hangover, the comedian can be seen with a large gap in his grin. That visual is not a result of any advanced prosthetic or computer trickery. His tooth is gone—because he had it pulled out.
